Tuesday 8th October 2019 will be a date to remember for Alicia Yates, as it will go down as the day she made her first-team debut for Hibernian against Forfar Farmington.
The youngster came on as a substitute in the 75th minute of the game, replacing Jenni Currie.
Yates is a famiiar face for us at YFS and we have been lucky to see her develop as a player over the years, one highlight being an Under 13's Scottish Cup victory for Bayside (pictured above), beating her now employers in the final.
It rounds off a good week to say the least for Yates, who is also part of the Scotland Women's Under 17 squad for the upcoming European Qualifiers starting on the 14th October.
Yates spoke to HibsTV in the aftermath of her debut and had this to say:
"It feels great to play in the first team, obviously the pace of play is just so much faster so it was great t just get on."
Congratulations from everyone at YFS and we look forward to more appearances in the future!
